I was going 82 in a 70mph interstate. I had a previous reckless driving charge that was reduced, so this was my second. Mr. Keefer told me exactly what materials to send him and what else I had to do. Did not have to show up at court and it was reduced to improper driving!
The only thing I wish he would have done better is tell me beforehand that I didn't need to show up to court. I had already changed my schedule/plans thinking I had to show.

Bob is the best lawyer in Harrisonburg and one of the best in the state especially for DUI cases. He has helped me in the past and getting prosecutors to drop or reduce charges so I have used him for a while with great success and never had any problems and I always had a good outcome for my cases.
Last year I managed to get two DUIs within a month because I had a seizure while I was driving but the prosecutors did not want to take that into account. I had no illegal drugs in my system and I had not been drinking so BAC was .0. When they took my blood they managed to find half of a Benadryl tablet that I take for allergies and used that as their basis for the first DUI. Bob helped me by hiring a drug recognition expert and also had my doctor come to court to testify that I do indeed have a seizure disorder after a long period of waiting they finally gave a plea deal of one year probation ASAP driving classes and a reckless driving.
The Second DUI happened after a seizure like the first one and when I failed of the field Sebright he test I could not even remember my name I had been knocked unconscious with a concussion so they use that as their bases that I was impaired because I could not perform the field tests even though my head head cracked the windshield and I was unconscious until they came. Bob worked his magic and managed to get an even better the deal for the second DUI - six months suspended license, one year, supervised probation and five days of trash pick up.
Bob was worth every penny I spent as Virginia is one of the toughest DUI enforcement states in the country and he managed to beat two of them for me. I have no DUIs on my record and I would recommend Bob to anybody especially if your case involves DUI or alcohol charges as those are his forte I believe.

My teenage daughter was ticketed for going at 87MPH in 70MPH zone on I-81 in Virginia. She was scheduled to appear in Shenandoah District Court and was represented by Mr. Bob Keefer on November 29th, 2016. Prior to hiring Mr. Keefer I talked to a couple of other attorneys, but Mr. Keefer gave me the feeling of being in control of this situation and well aware of local court processes. Although no one could guarantee the outcomes, my instinct was right and Mr. Keefer managed to reduce misdemeanor charge down to traffic infraction and $250 fine plus $64 for court fees.
I could not possibly ask for better results.
Many thanks to Mr. Keefer and his staff!!!

I was charged with an aggravated DUI (BAC of .17) , as well as a under 21 DWI in October of 2015. I was devastated the day after when I realized the road I had ahead of me. The first thing I did was meet with a few lawyers in the city of Harrisonburg. Most of them did not give me any promising news based on what I was being charged with. After consulting a few lawyers I caught wind of Robert Keefer. I did some research and talked to a few credible individuals who told me "Robert Keefer is the lawyer you need."
After consulting with Keefer, I decided to hire him as my defense lawyer. He too was honest and told me it was going to be a hard case, but he would do everything in his power to help me.
The next year was a long battle, but Keefer was positive and motivating. I have a diagnosed eating disorder which I was hospitalized for a few months after the incident. Keefer was compassionate and bold about my circumstances. Every time I spoke with him, he was quick to ask me how I was doing and provide caring words.
After reviewing my case many times Keefer saw how well I performed on my field sobriety test and knew there was no possible way I was intoxicated. He knew my medical issues played a big role into why my BAC was so high. In the following months, Keefer provided me with information of colleagues he worked with who he felt could help my case. Keefer put together a defense team consisting of 5 individuals including himself to fight my case.
On the day of the hearing Keefer performed a miracle! With the defense he put together, Keefer was able to convince the judge that I was not intoxicated while driving. All charges were dropped and the rest is history.
I would recommend Robert Keefer to anyone in need of an excellent lawyer. He is professional and very knowledgeable in his work. He cares about his clients and does everything in his power to help them. If you are looking for a lawyer who can provide, call Robert Keefer.
For the next year Keefer pulled together a team of experts t

I got a reckless for going 90 in a 70 zone as well as driving on an expired license. Mr. Keefer was familar with the system and had me do some service work and get together references to make a case. The reckless was dropped to a standard citation and the expired was dropped completely and I didn't have to drive the 5 hours to appear in court. He knows his stuff and if you do what he tells you then you have a good shot. It seems expensive but if you take into account the amount it will be for a guilty plea its actually not that different in price.

*I requested a free phone consult through Mr. Keefer's website ~2:00 pm on Friday 10/14/2016.
*I received a call from Mr. Keefer's office ~1:16 pm on Monday 10/17/2016 and gave them the specifics of my case. They asked me if I would be available for the phone consult that day at 4:30 pm.
*I received a call at 4:35 pm that day saying that Mr. Keefer was referring me to Mr. Derek Bostic.
*I called Mr. Bostic's office and discovered that they do not do free consults. In my case, the price of the consult would cost more than my speeding ticket fine.
*I called Mr. Keefer's office to ask if they could give me a reason why I was being referred to Mr. Bostic instead of actually speaking with Mr. Keefer as scheduled. Lisa said Mr. Keefer had given no reason and so I asked if she could ask Mr. Keefer. She said she would get back to me within a few days.
*A day or two later, I receive a call from Lisa saying that Mr. Keefer referred me to Mr. Bostic "because of his case load."
I was disappointed with how this whole process went. I can understand not taking cases due to a heavy case load, but I do not understand scheduling a phone consult and then during the scheduled phone consult time have someone call to cancel.

For a full-time college student who's pursuing a very demanding career in engineering, receiving a Reckless Driving Charge was my worst nightmare. I've never gotten a speeding ticket in my life, not to mention a charge for reckless driving. Coming from out of the state of Virginia, it was important for me to consult with a lawyer that knew the laws and rules of the area, had a significant amount of experience with these cases, and had great reviews online with desiring results.
This is why I chose Mr. Bob Keefer.
He was extremely responsive. I never felt like he was "too busy" to speak with me. When I called him, he immediately put my mind at ease, and he was very knowledgeable with the case and knew exactly what to present. His staff was extremely friendly and professional. Every time I called, my calls were answered and addressed the day of. Overall, there is no other attorney I would have went with. If you are currently facing a similar situation, I give my highest recommendation to Mr. Bob Keefer. He knows what he's doing, get's the job done, and will aid you every step of the way.

If you are reading this and deciding on hiring Mr. Robert Keefer, you are making the perfect choice and will have no regrets!
I was traveling south on I-81 passing through Harrisonburg, Virginia (70mph zone) and sped up to pass some slower traffic doing about 60 mph in the right lane. The cars coming up behind me were coming up real fast so I had to hit the gas to avoid slowing them down. When I pulled back into the right lane I saw the Police car with lights on coming up in the left lane. I was surprised when the officer pulled behind me. He said he clocked me at 88 in a 70 which is a misdemeanor charge of Reckless Driving Speed (88 in a 70). The officer also said that this is a criminal charge and I would need to show up in court. I work as a Defense Subcontractor and any criminal charge would result in my losing my security clearance and thus losing my job or 29 years. When I returned back home to New York I did some researching of Reckless Driving charges in Virginia and the charge is a serious criminal charge (one that nobody wants on their record). My research said that it is advisable to hire an attorney to represent me in court as a good attorney knows how to get charges lowered. After reading the reviews of several Harrisonburg lawyers, I decided to give Mr. Robert Keefer's office a call to get a consultation. I made this decision based on the hundreds of positive reviews I read concerning Mr. Keefer and his practice. When I called Mr. Keefer’s office I spoke to one of his assistants (Melanie). I expected that she would provide me the consultation or set something up for another day. Melanie ask me to hold for a second and I was surprised when Mr. Robert Keefer came back on the line. I told him the situation and Mr. Keefer told me he was confident that he would be able to get the charge reduced to a traffic violation. He then told me to continue my search for a lawyer and if I decided to use his practice, that he would be happy to represent me. This conversation with Mr. Keefer convinced me that he was the attorney I wanted to represent me. I told Mr. Keefer I would like to hire him as my attorney. He said there was no way for him to give me any guarantees, but that he was very confident he could get the criminal charge reduced. This conversation with Mr. Keefer helped alleviate some of the stress I was feeling.
I hired Mr. Keefer and was asked to provide some documentation to help him represent me (Driving Record, Letters of Character, Awards, Volunteer work, Driver Safety Course Completion Certificate, etc.). I collected all the requested data and mailed it to his office. I was also told there was no need for me to travel back for my appearance at trial as he would represent me. When you add up what the trip back to Virginia would cost me (travel time – 7 hours both ways driving, tolls, gas, hotel for night, time off of work, etc) and especially having a top-notch Lawyer to represent me, his Fees seemed very worthwhile.
Mr. Keefer just represented me on 9/28/16 and within an hour of my scheduled court appearance, I received an email with the results of my case. My Misdemeanor charge was reduced to Improper Driving with a $300 fine and $66 for court fees. This is a small amount of money when it comes to saving my career.
THANK YOU!!! Mr. Keefer, Melanie and Lisa!!!
I suggest you pick up the phone and call Mr. Keefer's office right now, you will not be disappointed.

Being my first time getting a reckless driving ticket, I was told that getting a lawyer would be a good idea so points won't be added to my license. Mr. Keefer did a great job reducing my ticket from a reckless driving to improper driving，and I didn't have to miss a few days of work to travel to another state. I definitely recommend him and his team.
